Price of Acer Iconia Tab A210 slashed to £234

The Acer Iconia Tab A210 is not the cheapest quad-core tablet on the market - both the Google Nexus 7 and the A210’s own little brother, the A110, cost less than £200. But the A210 comes with a bigger 10.1in screen and has a microSD card slot (whether or not that’s worth the £35-odd price difference is another matter).

Mobile1, which is part of Box and a sister website to saveonlaptop, sells the Iconia Tab A210 for £234 including delivery. The device has the same 1,280 x 800 pixel resolution as most other mainstream Android tablets, is powered by an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core system-on-chip clocked at 1GHz, has 1GB of RAM and ships with 16GB onboard storage which can be increased to 48GB by adding a 32GB microSD card (available for as little as £10).

There’s also a front-facing 2-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a USB and a microUSB port. The device runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with a proprietary user interface and a few bundled apps as well.

The entire Android tablet market has been shaken up by the arrival of the Google Nexus 7 tablet, a move that led vendors to reassess their positions against a newcomer that is both cheaper and more powerful.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
